Institute of Quarrying

On 11 and 12 April, at the Elangeni Hotel in Durban, the Institute of Quarrying South Africa hosted delegates from South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Hong Kong at their 50th annual conference.

The Institute of Quarrying SA was founded in South Africa in 1969, with more branches in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Hong Kong and their head office in the UK. After being nominated by ASPASA (The Aggregate and Sand Producers Association of South Africa) for two Safety Awards, Eskay Crushers received an award for the most improved operations and Mariska Robberts received a certificate of recognition for her Health and Safety Officer duties.

Awards were handed over by the Institute of Quarrying Chief Inspector of Mines, Mr David Msiza. The Eskay Crushers team worked their way up to a 5 – shields rating in Safety and a 5 – Fish Eagles rating in Environmental Impact, these ratings are according to External Audits done annually by ASPASA.

The idea is to minimize the impact on the environment while maximizing improvement on Health, Safety and Social aspects. Eskay Crushers would like to thank God and each member of their team; strong links make a strong chain.

We still need to build on the future for our children and minimizing the impact on our environment is crucial. We want to congratulate Eskay Crushers on their achievements!
